Springfield Armory’s Desert Duel

For the second time this year I had the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas for a writers’ event with Springfield Armory, the Desert Duel. Order it as an appetizer though, so you have enough room in your belly to eat the whole thing. It’s OK, just remember, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” SAINT AR-15 Pistol. Surely, that meant we would shoot a lot of ammo. Of all the firearms I shot the first day (remember, I can’t share everything), the RO Elite Operator in 9mm made the top of my list of favorites. At the end of the first day, we all competed in the Desert Duel 12 Man Double Elimination Tournament. The second day brought the introduction of more firearms, including the SAINT Edge. Let me tell you, Springfield Armory got it right with this flat shooting, high quality AR-15. After we had the opportunity to shoot all the new firearms, the day ended with the Desert Duel Mega Challenge Single Elimination Tournament. With multiple colored targets downrange, we shot certain targets with specified guns.

It’s OK, just remember, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”

Instead of a rifle buttstock, the new SAINT AR-15 pistol features a rugged SB Tactical SBX-K forearm brace to reduce size, stabilize recoil and enhance accuracy in 1 or 2-hand shooting.

My eyes about popped out of my head when arrived at the Clark County Education Center and Range. Lined up from end-to-end of the 100 yard range stood steel targets such as I have never seen….
